The floor felt like you was fixing to fall through. The toilet rocked. It only had a tiny shower first my grandkids. It had 2 doors, front and back. You could clearly see through the edges of the doors as if they didn't shut tight. Felt very unsafe for us 4 girls. Had to put desk against back door, and suitcases in front of front door. I will never stay here again!

The bathroom smelled like urine, later we found out it was the mildewed shower curtain. The floor was sticky. The walls and counters were falling apart.

The pool was clean. The rooms were not. We had the king condo and there was a large hole in the wall. The pull out couch mattress was Stained and there was no linens to make up the couch. The bathroom had hair on the back of the sink where someone had shaved earlier in the day before checking out and the cleaning staff just didn’t clean it. We spent extra for the room with a kitchen and there were no proper utensils for cooking, and not enough plates or silverware, or anything to properly utilize the kitchen. The only thing that was good about aqua view was the front desk. He genuinely was apologetic for all of our problems.

Beach location without the price

Room was clean, but there were a few small stains on the sheets and cigarette holes in the blanket. Floors are tile. Bathroom newly remodeled, and the water pressure was good. Parking is limited. Right next to beach access.

Older place; satisfaction good.

I am going to give this place an overall three. Sure I have seen better but what stands out about this motel is that despite being surrounded by private rental beach houses, condos, and private business tourist traps; it has stood the test of time. Rarely anywhere in the entire Panama City Beach Florida area do you see a glimpse of the past when this area was more than just a tourist breeding ground. This place and a few others on Thomas Drive as well as a few more on Front Beach Road remind me of the mom-and-pop places of the 60's and 70's where you could actually see the beautiful beaches and dunes from the road vs. the ugly condominiums, chain restaurants, and similar crap you see there now.
